The landscape up ahead is overwhelming
It's hard to see the forest for the trees
but the motor hums as though it understands me
and that's all the confidence I'll ever need

The sunset makes the highway come off haunted
Like the scenery doesn't have that much to say
Maybe we lost sight of what we wanted
The destination's not important anyway

But what if I told you I was never coming home again?
What if I told you this was it?

Would you ride with me
down the only road we ever knew
I'll keep you like a secret in my heart
Or are you afraid
that we may have missed the exit
you've been looking in the rear-view from the start

Watching as the city glows before me
It distracts me but it somehow clears my head
The desert morning creeps up on you slowly
if you're not living then you may as well be dead
